In bear markets, be a trader to perserve capital, in bull markets, be an investor. I'm up this year, but once the market turns, I throw my money into some index funds... that way I keep my money in hard times and match the market in good times.

yo, MagicDiligence.

ditto goldminingXpert. sitting back and watching the decline of the markets is not a way to preserve capital. when the bottom comes i will invest my profits for my son and grandaughter's future.

never give them a standing target in a shootout.
